Mac OS X 10.4.8
Safari Browser
I am trying to watch
RADIANCE: The Experience of Light
at this site
http://www.archive.org/details/radiance
I click on "Click to play video" wait and long, long time
and get a few seconds of video,
then wait forever, and get another few seconds. I see that 2,231 people have downloaded it,
so I know it works for somebody!!!

I am on 10.4.9, but otherwise the same and it works for me.

could be a differences in bandwidth back to the archive.

josh these things are hard to debug.

Hi Brewster,
This is Dorothy Fadiman I waited minutes (?) and finally got it started...at 23 sec. it froze...then I waited a couple of minutes and it played again and froze at 34 seconds...as I write I am waiting for it to play again. You may know my work (I have LOTS of films at internet archive FADIMAN SOCIAL DOCUMENTARIES...ONE SET OF FIVE AIDS IN ETHIOPIA IS IN TWO LANGUAGES...THAT'S TEN). OK after three minutes it played from 34 sec to 45 seconds. If you go to my site, you will see that I send LOTS of people to internet archive
www.concentric.org so I do want to untangle what is going on.
Thanks.

OK Now I see the pattern, I wait minutes and get 10 seconds at a time. I see that someone else had the same pattern.
